Obituary: Larry Dale Allen Sr.

Larry Dale Allen Sr., 62, formerly of Lumberton, died July 7, 2017.  

Born in Beaumont on May 6, 1955, Larry is the son of J.D. Allen Sr. and Adelle Thompson Allen of Lumberton. 

He is preceded in death by his wife, Lisa Allen, and son Chase Douglas Allen.

Larry is survived by his parents, J.D. Allen Sr. and Adelle Thompson Allen; two children, Larry D. Allen Jr. and Taylor Grace Allen; two grandchildren, Trenton Lee Coburn and Emma Grace Coburn; his brothers John David Allen Jr. and Paul Wayne Allen; numerous cousins, nieces and nephews; and lots of friends. Larry was passionate about all things on the water – tubing, boating, fishing, crabbing – and boiling crawfish, all of which he instilled in his children.  He was a retired projectionist and stagehand, a trade he loved and served for the majority of his adult life.

The family extends a special thanks to Dennis Waller for his unwavering dedication to his cousin over the past years.

A memorial to celebrate the life of Larry “Daddy” Allen will be held at DD’s pond on Glaze Road in Sour Lake at 4 p.m. Saturday, July 15. All are welcome.
